The Four Tomatoes is a casual family friendly cafe, located on Mahabandoola Road. The café holds its uniqueness in its presentation and in its menus. It has two opening times, serving two different cuisines in one day.
The first opening is from 9am to 2pm and the second round is from 5pm to 10pm. The first opening takes the day with some traditional Burmese dishes with some of the ingredients imported from Mandalay and some Asian food and the second opening sees some western food such as pizzas and pasta.
The interior of the café looks very different from what you might imagine upon glancing the café. The decoration inside is very simple with very little paintings on the walls. It was very easy on the eyes.
The décor that pulls all the attention was this board on the wall where one side of it is filled with traditional Burmese noddle making equipment while the other with pizza making tools.
We started the day with a Pork Gyoza (2,000 ks). The wraps were made by the chefs. Each bite was packed with flavors. Sesame oil was put on top of it as finishing touch.
We moved onto the Koh Taung Monti(2,200ks), which was rice noddle mixed with gram flour and the difference between their and others would be their oil usage which seems to be very regulated. On top of dish they would put some fried featherback fish as finishing touch.
Upon waiting for the next dish to arrive, I was served with Fried Tofu (which is complimentary). The tomato sauce which is homemade and organic complements well with the dish.
Though they are still making the menu for the evening, the current food looks fine.
If you are looking to hang out with a couple of friends and get some new experience, this would be the place.
